Caught Cheating

April 27th, 2016

nikeRecently, a nineteen-year-old cyclist was banned from competing for six years for using a bike with a hidden motor in it. I didn’t even realize this was possible, but after reading the story and watching this video of motorized bikes, it is doable and remarkable.

I find it surprising that individuals would cheat at this level of sport, knowing that there is technology to catch foul play; no different than the technology used to cheat. But, I suppose that the real race in cheating is staying ahead of technology.

This topic can relate back to the corporate world. If people are consistently inventing ways to steal from your business, what are you doing to counter it? Whether you apply new technology, use social media for intelligence, penetration testing, security audits or investigations, you have to think like someone trying to beat the existing system, and stay a step ahead.
